So, the code in launchpad has never reflected this position.  It has
always marked main-but-non-server/desktop-seeded as the non-LTS support
length.  Given we *just* released xenial, it's *possible* we could
very carefully regenerate the release pocket to reflect a better view
of reality, if there's an agreement on what reality is, but this is
not a regression from how we generated that field in the past.
